    Zig Zag by Ellen Wittlinger was an amazing book that kept me on my toes throughout the story. I extremely enjoyed this book for many reasons. One reason is that the plot line was incredible. It wasnt always realistic, however, it was very entertaining and fun to read. Another thing I liked about it was that the characters were relatable and deep. By deep I mean that they always appeared a certain way, however as the story continued, they changed and you found out why they were they way they were. Lastly, I enjoyed how the characters changed as the story went on. As they learned lessons and matured, they changed as people, normally for the better, and discovered things about themselves.<BR/><BR/> The plot line was also phenomenal. The book started out with the main character, Robin, finding out that her boyfriend whom is going away to college in the fall, is going away the Europe throughout their 'final summer together. Heart-broken and feeling sorry for herself, Robin decides to go on a roadtrip with her bratty cousins and her helpless aunt. At first, she hated the trip and only went on it to make her summer seem anything but miserable to her boyfriend Chris. However, as the trip continues, Robin changes as a person and learns that she doesn't need to lean on Chris to make herself feel good. She goes through an emotional rollercoaster while on the roadtrip, but in the end, she discovers things about herself that without this trip, would have never learned. <BR/><BR/> I enjoy most realistic fiction, however I think most people who love a good heartwrenching, funny book will enjoy this novel. Zig Zag is a book that makes the reader think about himself/herself in a different way.
